Hi, MishSA, and welcome! I'm so glad you found us and joined the family! There are still some doctors out there that don't know much about fibro or they think this is all in your head. Nice, huh? Nope, it's not all in your head. It's difficult to diagnose because all of our tests come back just fine. Plus, there is no test for fibro. The symptoms of fibro are like those of other illnesses so those illnesses have to be ruled out first. It sounds like this is being done. BUT you do want to make sure your doctor treats fibromyalgia patients. You need to flat out ask or you are wasting your time.
Be sure to read Fibro 101...the second thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibro and you will learn a lot there. Good starting links are called Symptoms, What Else Could It Be, and A Thorough Explanation of Fibromyalgia. You just might see yourself there.
I have some good ideas for back pain but I can't open the folders on my computer this morning. But, when I do, I'll post these. This has helped me a lot.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. Hope to hear more from you soon.
